Summary

Section 1 of the bill makes legislative findings.
Section 3 prohibits a cigarette, tobacco product, or nicotine
product (product) retailer from selling, offering for sale, advertising for
sale, displaying, or marketing in the state any flavored product, and
section 2 defines flavored product as a product imparting a taste or smell
other than the taste or smell of tobacco. A retailer, manufacturer of
products, or employee or agent of a retailer or manufacturer of products
engages in conduct creating a rebuttable presumption that a product is a
flavored product if the person makes a public statement or claim, uses
text or images, or takes other action directed toward consumers indicating
that the product has a taste or smell other than the taste or smell of
tobacco.
Section 4 imposes the same penalties for selling, offering for sale,
advertising for sale, displaying, or marketing in the state any flavored
product that apply to unlawful sales of products to minors.
Section 5 amends the definition of product to include products
containing synthetic nicotine, and section 2 defines synthetic nicotine as
nicotine derived from a source other than tobacco.
Section 6 directs the prevention services division in the
department of public health and environment (department) to convene a
working group to develop, implement, and administer a grant program to
award 2-year grants to applicants who are able to provide
evidence-informed and individualized wrap-around services in
communities disproportionately impacted by targeted tobacco and
nicotine marketing and sales or by increased or minimally improved
tobacco-use and nicotine-use prevalence rates. Section 6 also directs the
general assembly to appropriate $10 million from the general fund to the
department for the grant program.
